If you are young and healthy, locking in affordable permanent policy rates is possible as well. Layering permanent policies with term policies is another option, and if you want life-long coverage you’ll want to look into a permanent policy. Life insurance is very flexible, so whatever your needs are, Quotacy can help you get coverage.
